IMHO, the "pre-shot" routine starts when it is YOUR TURN TO HIT. Before it is your turn to hit, you should have already looked at your lie, checked the yardage, checked the wind, picked the shot, and chosen the club.

Please read my post about overseed conditions in this thread: http://thesandtrap.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29799 You can find the published overseed schedule here: http://southwest.pga.com/gui/pgasout...edschedule.pdf I would look for courses that started...
The Legacy is a well-conditioned Gary Panks layout with nice customer service amenities. It is routed through housing, but the playing corridors are wide and the houses are not intrusive. Although it is not a particularly memorable design, there is a good mix of holes and interesting greens. The Legacy's neighbor, The Raven @ S. Mountain is nothing special given the price.
